Trump's latest idea , "send infected people to the sun" , when told that they will burn up as will their space ship , his reply was , "send them at night" ,

He did say it and he meant it ,

Hi Jon Boy,

OK, I'll bite, what is it that you actually write?
And do your proofreaders mock you when you make an error in grammar?

Re Trump, if you read my earlier posts to Mal, you will see that I fully covered that issue and gave my opinion.
I can copy and paste it for you if you wish.

My conservation with Mal re trans bender gronouns, was me explaining Jordan Peterson's opinions on the subject. You can call him a pseudo-intellectual if you wish, but I'm not sure what standard you are inspiring to, considering he was a Harvard professor.

BB.

Hi Mal,

Your school making robust checks to see if a student is trans and making a genuine claim is no different to what JP said. In other words, he, like your school, is deciding whether a claim is genuine before deciding whether to agree to it. I don't see a difference, and as a highly qualified and experienced clinical psychologist, and University professor, I would suggest JP might be better at it.

I mean, a racist making claims of racial superiority is an obvious marker for the boundary to the far right.

The world has plenty of monsters like Mengele who would cut your throat if given the chance. Only a far superior military with the ability to precision strike keeps them in check.

I am familiar with proofreaders BB, they get paid to read stuff I write, although they rarely complain much unless I fail to read some US style guide. In which case I simply apologise and say I was pissed when I wrote it. They wish me well and hope I'm no longer angry

Can't help but think your pseudo-intellectual ramblings about trans gender pronouns is you trying to deflect from the fact that Trump has come out with such cobblers that you would rather talk about anything else.

Hiya BB

I get the thing about the legislation and his opposition to that. Saying that he would decide what / who is genuine is the self important bit for me.

With regard to your examples at school, there's a process we go through for trans students if they want to be known by a new name which is more robust than just your obnoxious oik deciding on the spot for the sake of being 'funny'. Schools are places to learn and in recent years, staff have had the chance to learn about a lot of these important issues from our students.

Not sure what you mean by far right ideology showing in 'racial superiority' - do you mean a misconception / claim of racial superiority? Hopefully.

We can TRY to reason with anyone. We won't always succeed - I accept that. And there are some people like Mengele who are so extreme that the opportunity was clearly missed before he was too far gone.

Yeah Dylan is before my time a bit technically - but he's stayed in the limelight for longer I suppose. Now Slash... there's a guitar player...

Hi Jon Boy,

I'm not surprised you wouldn't HAVE twigged it. It was obvious to me. Trump was teasing them.
You're too busy pretending to be a proofreader.
To be one you have to have strong powers of constipation, so that your decree of accuracy is absolute and inflammable.

He says he 'was being sarcastic to reporters'.

I'm surprised his supporters hadn't picked up on that before and pointed it out to the unsophisticated like me who just think he's a babbling halfwit.

Hi Mal,

Re JP, you and his detractors keep missing the point. For him, it's not about transgenders it's about Canadian government legislation to compel speech by law. Never in 700 years of English common law has any government dared to try and compel speech. It's an attack on the right to free speech that our democracies are founded on. That's why the US call it the first amendment. The first and most important one. You dare go down that road at your peril. He has never yet been asked to refer to a transperson by a specific pronoun and said he would, if he considered the request to be genuine. In your case, if a student asked you to call him Adolf Hitler would you? And if not, then it is you who has made the decision on what you consider to be acceptable.
I know that is an extreme example, but what if a rebellious butch boy who you knew not to be trans asked you to call him Zee or Zim in order to try and make you look foolish would you? And if not, then you would be making the decision on what pronoun you were prepared to use, not him.
JP said that he's had 40 letters from transpeople only one of which was critical, who told him that all the supposed compassion and attention being made of them was making their lives hell and felt they were being used for an agenda. So, as with most things, when looking for the truth, the devil's in the detail.
And if you want to see the hypocrisy of a Canadian Uni, look up the Lindsey Sheppard affair.

Re English or any other literature, I think you must be referring to his criticism of post modernism.
Re far left and far right ideology, they are not just damaging, if left to reach full potential, they are genocidal.
Yes, far right ideology is easier to spot because it shows itself in racial superiority, but far left is not so easy to spot because it doesn't have such an obvious marker.

Sorry, but you can't reason with terrorists, brutal dictators etc. They don't have a moral compass with which to understand your humanity. Do you think you could have reasoned with Josef Mengele?

Gordon Lightfoot vids are aplenty on U tube. You should check him out, and if he was before your time then so was Dylan who was even earlier. His 1972 BBC concert is him at his peak.

BB.

Edit. Sorry Sir B but I couldn't HAVE let him get away with it.
